One of the more disturbing hallmarks of the Biden administration is the relentless determination to demonize all conservatives and Republicans for purely political reasons.
We are constantly being fed some fantastical fiction about the real threat to America being white male “domestic terrorists” who seem to mostly exist in the minds of people working for the Dept. of Justice. Meanwhile, as we’ve seen this past week, Democrats are encouraging mobs to illegally harass Supreme Court Justices at their homes.
We’ve also seen them try to brand middle-class parents as terrorists for the heinous crime of showing up to school board meetings. The administration has flailed a lot and tried to walk that back, but it hasn’t done that very well.
Victoria wrote something yesterday that makes this sad tale even more disturbing:
If whistleblowers are telling GOP members of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee the truth, Attorney General Merrick Garland was lying to Congress when he denied parents were being targeted with counterterrorism investigations for the “crime” of getting angry at school board meetings.
On Oct. 21, 2021, Garland told a Congressional hearing, “I can’t imagine any circumstance in which the Patriot Act would be used in the circumstances of parents complaining about their children, nor can I imagine a circumstance where they would be labeled as domestic terrorism.”
But whistleblowers told GOP members of the House Judiciary Committee that that’s exactly what Garland did. Indeed, the witnesses say, “dozens” of people were investigated using the Patriot Act counterterrorism tools at the FBI’s disposal.
That’s the chief law enforcement officer in the United States lying to cover up targeting soccer moms. It may not have been a lot of them, but the fact that it happened at all is egregious. And Garland knows it’s wrong if he’s lying about it.
Of course, this isn’t the first time that the Democrats have weaponized the federal government to target conservatives. The Obama administration sent the IRS after Tea Party groups and they were less than forthcoming about that too.
The United States has plenty of real problems, but this administration keeps going after phantoms under the bed. Now President LOLEightyonemillion is running around babbling about the dangerous “Ultra MAGA” bogeymen that are rattling around in that empty brain of his.
